Arduino-packin' Didgeridoo features 17 effects controls, drones with the best of 'em (video)
You know, we don't see too many didgeridoos in these parts (and for good reason, seeing as how it is little more than a pipe) but wait'll to you get a load of this aerophone-wielding maniac: Kyle Evans has grafted an Arduino Bluetooth module to his "didge" (as we say 'round the drum circle) and supplied a wireless mic to transmit audio to his laptop, where the sound is manipulated via custom-built audio processing software. The controllers for the various effects are situated on the instrument itself (including six push button switches, six pots, and five toggle switches), bringing your avante-garde dreams one step closer to reality. Tell La Monte Young we said "Hi." Video after the break.
